A Yucky Situation!

This might be a weird question but does anyone know if the baby's poop changes color when they start teething.. I thought I read that somewhere and there was a yucky surprise in her diaper today... wanted to know if anyone else had that same wonderful experience?

  • are u sure she hasn't had anything different to eat/drink?(your u if you're BFing?) my kids always get really loose stools when teething, sometimes diarrheaish, but idk about changing the COLOR so much :-/ my mom always said it was from all the extra drool they have and they swallow it, can cause tummy aches too :( hope your little one doesn't have too hard of a time with teething! :)

  • Well, we are trying solid food at the same time (baby oatmeal with pears mixed) so that might be part of the color extravaganza.... that might be overstating it a bit.. not so much an extravaganza as just a greenish black color.

  • For futher references babycenter webisite has a poop gallery and it talks about what the different looking poop could be from.
